As many readers may know, Texas, Oregon, and other states had freezes that led to massive power outages. The responses by government and power companies are under review.
Former congressman, Allen West, gave the best feedback to date. West was a colonel in the U.S. Army and knows a thing or two about leadership. His suggestions are here for you to read. You have to forgive the partisan website. That is not the intent. If you want to write off the wisdom because of party politics, you are only hurting yourself in this instance.
Allen West breaks down crisis management into three categories: assume the worst and plan; one person sets up a plan – another person checks it before implementing; and, lastly, no plan survives the first contact – in other words, adjust to circumstances.
If you read West’s message, you will be better prepared in emergencies and life.
Application for fathers: choose one leadership main idea from West’s article and discuss with your family over dinner. No phones!
